Really Quick and Random Link

For those of you who like to play dress-up (or do re-enactment stuffs, like I do)....I found a corset maker that is actually AFFORDABLE: Corset Story.

They are currently running a 3-for-2 deal, but I skipped that and went right to the Clearance page. Yes, I bought - a black brocade STEEL-boned corset for $47. :blink: That's - that's SERIOUSLY cheap. The last "dressy" corset I bought (similar to this, only it was a green-with-gold-Chinese-dragons brocade) was - sit down - $225. And I was a single mom at the time, and couldn't put the thing on by myself, so I passed it on to someone who could. :sigh: (I think I got $100 for it - not the best resale, for me, but.....I couldn't wear it, and something was better than nothing. :sigh:)

I could get into SO much trouble here, if I was of the mind (and budget!) to spend - the steampunk corsets are...well, I want. But don't need. (The black one I bought? I do need, because...:sigh: I have grown out of my current bodices. Well, Yes, I can squeeze into them, if I don't mind NOT eating/breathing/moving while laced up. Irish Fest is coming up, and...well, I need something so I'm not "frumpy". I refuse to go "undressed"...and this fit my budget. I won't mind shrinking out of it, either - not at $47. :grin: This isn't my usual style, but it's nice and classy-looking.)

You're welcome. :wink:
